Staging is the procedure of determining where the tumor is located. It also determines whether it has spread or not, and how it grows. While assessing the cancer stage, many factors come into account.
Unlike most solid tumors, eosinophilic leukemia doesn’t have a formal staging system. However, doctors use diagnostic tests, like those discussed in the Diagnosis section, to evaluate eosinophilic leukemia to help decide what kind of treatment is best and predict your prognosis; that is the chance of recovery.
Regular blood tests are the standard ways to monitor a person’s recovery from eosinophilic leukemia, including any symptoms related to the disease and the number of immature cells in the bone marrow. Talk with your doctor for more details on how to evaluate your specific type of leukemia.
